I would like to apologise to all those who have been in contact with me regarding the prayers on this and other pages to St Joseph. My computer went down and I had to put it back to factory settings and so lost all the E-mails sent to me.
Could you please resend your E-mails to me and I will do my best to answer your questions for you. Also, could you leave your E-mail addresses on my Guest Book page and that way I won't lose your information. I really would appreciate your co-operation in this and look forward to future commmunications with you all.
THE HAIL JOSEPH
Hail Joseph Full of Grace,
The Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou amongst men,
And Blessed is Thy Son Jesus.
Holy Joseph, Virgin Father of the Son of God,
pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
THE HAIL HOLY JOSEPH
Hail Holy Joseph, Father of Mercy.
Hail our love, our hope, and our light.
To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Adam.
To Thee do we send up our sighs, mourning, and weeping in
this valley of tears.
Turn then, Most Omnipotent Advocate, Thine eyes of
compassion towards us.
And after this our exile show to us Thy well beloved Son,
O Gentle, O Loving, O Sweet Saint Joseph,
V. pray for us O Holy Virgin Father of Jesus,
R. that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
MEMORARE TO ST JOSEPH
Remember, O most loving St Joseph, that it is a thing unheard of that anyone who ever had recourse to Your protection, implored Your help, or sought Your intercession was left forsaken.
Filled, therefore, with confidence in Your goodness, I fly to You, O Father, Guardian of virgins. To You I come, before You I stand a sorrowful sinner. Despise not my poor words, O Virgin Father of the Word of God, but graciously hear and grant my prayer. Amen.
ST JOSEPH'S ANGELUS
V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Joseph.
R. And He became the Virgin Father of Jesus.
V. And being raised from sleep Joseph did as the angel of the
Lord had bidden Him.
R. And took unto Him His wife.
V. And the Word became flesh.
R. And dwelt amongst us.
Let Us Pray.
Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your grace into our hearts,
that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Your Son, was made known by the messege of an angel, may be brought by His Passion and Cross + to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
May the Divine Assistance remain always with us + and may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

Since St Joseph, Our Lord's Virgin Father is actually mentioned within the context of the "Luminous Mysteries", it is only fitting that they should be included in His Rosary. So I have added these Mysteries to the normal Fifteen Decade Rosary of the Blessed St Joseph. Here are the Luminous Mysteries of St Joseph's Rosary.
1) The Baptism of Jesus and the Acknowledgement of Joseph.
2) The Apostle's acknowledgement of Joseph in Prophecy and Jesus as Messiah.
3) The Proclamation of The Kingdom.
4) The Transfiguration.
5) The Institution of the Eucharist.

Let Us Pray
O God, Whose Only Begotten Son, by His Life, Death, and Resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of Eternal Life. Grant, we beseech You, that by meditating on these Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Saint Joseph, we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
